This Olive Oil bread is made using the Allinson Olive Oil dough - a great starter dough that can be used to create a range of delicious recipes, including this flavoursome and luxurious olive oil bread. Made in six easy steps, this bread is the perfect accompaniment to pasta or as a starter dipped in balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. 

Method

  1. MIX Mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a big bowl. Mix the water and oil together, then stir in with a cutlery knife.

  2. KNEAD Tip onto a lightly flour dusted surface and knead for 10 minutes (or use the dough hook attachment on your mixer). 

  3. RISE Lightly grease the mixing bowl with some oil. Put the dough back in, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in size.

  4. SHAPE Knock back the dough by gently kneading just 5 times to get the air out. Shape into a long oval on an oiled baking sheet.

  5. Cover the dough again with a clean tea towel and leave to prove until doubled in size again. Preheat your oven to 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 6).

  6. BAKE Bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden and when you tap the base of the loaf it sounds hollow. Cool on a wire rack.
